Marvellous Mammoths: Mammoths in Huntingdonshire by Chris Thomas

  • by

Marvellous Mammoths takes you on a journey back in time: From the present to nearly 3 million years ago – and back again. A story based in the East of England, but relevant to the rest of the UK.

Come on an 18,000 kilometre round trip from St Petersburg to Siberia to recover the very first intact mammoth in 1902. There’s the mystery of how and when a sample of this mammoth’s hair came to the Norris Museum in St Ives, Huntingdonshire, UK.

Going back in time, to before the current ice age and its waves of ice began, we discover mammoths here in the East of England.

Chris, the author of the book, was lured into the Norris Museum by chance and ended up researching mammoths, the ice ages and ancient humans for the Marvellous Mammoths exhibition in 2015.

The book was made possible by the collection and encouragement of the Norris Museum and has been published with the support of the Goodliffe Award, given by the Huntingdonshire Local History Society.

Brouhaha: One child’s memories of the war by Pamela Cotton

  • by

In this personal account, Pamela Cotton vividly recalls her childhood, from shortly before the start of the war to VJ day. The experience profoundly shaped her views and made her an ardent pacifist; views she holds to this day.

‘World War II had a dramatic effect on the lives of children in the UK, even in seemingly ‘safe’ country villages. At the age of six, I saw my father go off to war. With my mother and sister, we moved from our home in military target Colchester to live in the village of Rodborough in Gloucestershire.

I learnt first-hand how sensitive children are to the emotions and foibles of the adults around them; the constant undercurrent of fear that a major conflict creates. Most of all, I saw how peoples’ and politicians’ attitudes change; where the once reviled Joseph Stalin suddenly becomes “Uncle Jo”; where mass slaughter of cilvilians becomes a matter of satisfaction; and where, as a child, I discovered the hypocrisy of being told to live and love, whilst the adult reality in war is so very different.’

Pamela’s first book, ‘Dear Ruth: A lament for Bygone Africa‘, describes her later journeys in life.
